Barry and Holly Tashian - We Don't Give Up On Love

Barry and Holly Tashian, joined by Ross Sermons (The Carter Brothers, The Gordons, Wil Maring and Robert Bowlin) on bass, perform "We Don't Give Up On Love", from their latest CD, "Long Story Short".

Barry & Holly Tashian are duet singers, songwriters and touring musicians who have known each other since high school in Westport, CT. They have performed and recorded together since 1972 as a duo, a trio (with bass) or a foursome (with mandolin/fiddle).

Recordings: The Tashians have recorded 7 albums with producer Jim Rooney. In 1994 the National Association of Independent Record Distributors (NAIRD) awarded their album "Straw into Gold" Country Album of the Year. In 1998 their album, "Harmony" was nominated for Bluegrass Album of the Year by the Nashville Music Awards. They have performed together on the Grand Ole Opry, on numerous TV and radio shows, and at music festivals worldwide.

Their latest album, Long Story Short, is an eclectic blend of Americana styles, all acoustic "toe tapping" duets and solos ranging from bluegrass to swing, traditional country and even a touch of the blues.

Barry and Holly have also recorded with Tom Paxton, Charlie Louvin, Nanci Griffith, Iris DeMent, Suzy Bogguss, and Delia Bell.

Songwriting: Barry and Holly have written for Kenny Rogers, Solomon Burke, Ty England, Daniel O'Donnell, The Nashville Bluegrass Band, Roland White, Kate Brislin and Jody Stecher, and many others. They also offer workshops on song writing and harmony singing wherever they perform.

Emmylou Harris's Hot Band: From 1980-1989, Barry was a member of Emmylou Harris' Hot Band, appearing on countless television and radio shows as vocalist and guitarist. He recorded 10 albums with Emmylou during this period. Before that, he recorded with country rock innovator Gram Parsons on Gram's debut album "GP".

Rock and Roll beginnings: Barry first won national attention at age 19 with his legendary rock group, Barry & The Remains, recording an album on Epic Records and appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show and Hullabaloo.

Touring with the Beatles: In 1966 The Remains toured as the opening act on The Beatles' last North American tour. Barry's book about the tour, Ticket to Ride: The Extraordinary Diary of The Beatles Last Tour, was published by Dowling Press in 1997.
